I don't think so.

I tried second life for a few hours, but it didn't take long until I was exposed to pornographic images. I find Kerath's Arch way more impressive. :wink:

Second Life is full of anatomically correct naked people, porn and cyber sex.
Is the other one any better? I am not interested in being exposed to any of that stuff.

URU is the best MMORPG that I have ever played and I don't think that there is anything better out there. :D

And everything is for sale. I don't find any of it remotely appealing. Not to mention they weren't built by the D'ni.

I have been in "There" for 2 years, in addition to MO_UL, of course, and no there is no nudity, might see a little cleavage but nothing I would consider even close to Porn. "There" has very strict rules for the designs we as designers are allowed to bring into the world. I am a fashion designer and learning to do some 3D designs too. (and enjoying that part a lot) Other designers have made some VERY Myst-like items and some of us have built some very myst-like "ages". we Have our version of Stoneship and Channelwood, I even have Zandi's trailer set up in one of my lots ;) and we are working to make some other Mysty areas as well. Yes if you do build or want a nice wardrobe, it is a purchase thing, but you never HAVE to purchase anything. It's a one time $10 fee to join, and have voice chat, which is quite good BTW. . the rest is optional. some people just enjoy others building projects and leave it at that.

Our Myst/Uru community that Knottyboy spoke of, "the Shorah Community" is mostly people who met in Uru before the first announcement came through, :( not wanting to lose connections with our friends we "made a home" in There.

Nope it's not Uru, and yes, the graphics are below standard by Uru comparisons but we manage to have fun.

here's a screenshot of some of our Shorah gang having fun (yes we have vehicles, cars, hoverbikes,hoverboards, Hoverboats and hoverpacks!)

Mystdee is right about There, I have been lucky enough to have found a home there, I play as Nema. The nice thing about There is you can make it whatever you want it to be and we have constant events and things to do. If you are interested in trying There we will welcome you with open arms. Trial is free but until you pay for a premium membership approx $10 us, you won't have voice function and will have to type. Look for the Shorah neighborhoods or IM any of the avi that are in Mystdee's pictures.
This is a sad time for all of us and I'm not trying to diminish it. I am just extended an invitation to visit.
Natika in Uru
Nema in There

Hehe :)

Well, if anyone wants to take up that challenge, this: http://www.crystalspace3d.org/main/CELstart might be a good starting point. There's a Blender plugin for it, too.

Combine that with some XMPP code for chat, and set up a server somewhere, and who knows what could be achieved with a dedicated enough community! :)

This looks interesting, too: http://www.planeshift.it/

Simply put, there isn't currently another MMO like Uru. The only game on the horizon (distant, maybe very distant, horizon) that might be like Uru is the Longest Journey MMO that's in the works.
